The only way the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki can avoid being impeached is to resign his position, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, said on Friday.
Oshiomhole said that the senate president’s removal will be according to the law and democratic norms, adding that ” the only way Saraki can avoid impeachment is for him to do what is honourable which again leads to the issue of character.”
“Saraki is not going to be the first senate president to be impeached and I doubt if he is going to be the last, but definitely he will be impeached according to law and to democratic norms,” said the APC national chairman.
Oshiohmole was reacting to claims by the senate president and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party that Tuesday’s invasion of the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services was a failed attempt to force a leadership change in the legislature.
He said that unlike Saraki, Senator Akpabio, who defected from the PDP to the APC, resigned as the Minority Leader.
Oshiomhole stated that the first thing Akpabio did was to inform the PDP and resigned honourably.
“Senator Saraki has demonstrated neither character nor being a man of honour,” the APC national chairman said.
